Re: Mail server

[disclaimer: I am not a specialist in mail servers at all]

I have installed James (check www.apache.org) on one machine and its
developers claim, if I remember correctly, to send several millions of
mails during their performance testing. I found it really easy to
administrate and I am using MySQL for back-end. The tool is written in
Java, so it might not be as fast as other mail servers, but to serve one
thousand users, that should be largely sufficient.
